Mein Herz ist schwer, mein Auge wacht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mein Herz ist schwer, mein Auge wacht,
Der Wind fährt seufzend durch die Nacht;
Die Wipfel rauschen weit und breit,
Sie rauschen von vergangner Zeit.

Sie rauschen von vergangner Zeit,
Von großen Glück und Herzeleid,
Vom Schloß und von der Jungfrau drin -
Wo ist das alles, alles hin?

Wo ist das alles, alles hin,
Leid, Lieb' und Lust und Jugendsinn?
Der Wind fährt seufzend durch die Nacht,
Mein Herz ist schwer, mein Auge wacht.

Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE
